Landing aboard an aircraft carrier is a task fraught with danger under normal conditions. When an aircraft has a malfunction or becomes disabled, it can be especially dangerous. The Mark-V barricade was developed to arrest disabled aircraft which, for whatever reason, may not be able to land by conventional "hook on a cable" means. Shown in this film are the procedures used to deploy the barricade, with commentary about how teamwork and attention to detail makes all the difference. Topic: U.S. Navy training film.
